Happy Birthday, Little Moose

Ever since my son's first visit to Zoo Atlanta in August, he's been obsessed with pandas!  So when it came time to pick a birthday party theme for the Little Moose's (so nicknamed by his pediatrician for his hearty growth his first year), it was a no-brainer!

Moose's 2nd Birthday fell during Thanksgiving week, so we delayed his party until yesterday so all of his friends would be in town.  I ordered these balloons from Oriental Trading Company to decorate. 

And we noshed on these panda cupcakes.  (Well, to be fair, I ended up ordering iced vanilla cupcakes and decorated them myself; last week was shaping up to be one of "those weeks" and I didn't think a cranky Mommy Moose would contribute to the party atmosphere.) 

I also served this Man Dip recipe with corn chips, pigs in blankets, and pizza biscuits.  The pizza biscuits are a favorite in our house and I figured I would freeze the leftovers - except that there were only three left over!

Judging by the amount of food consumed, the length of time the mostly-adult guests stayed (despite any real "activities" - c'mon, it's a two-year-old's party), and the extra hour of sleep the Moose took this morning, I'd say the party was a success!

He even got a gorgeous new panda from one of his aunts!  Happy Birthday, my (not so) little Moose!


  1. Sounds like a great party! Happy birthday to your son. Those pizza biscuits sound superb.

  2. Great job with the cupcakes and I love your son's nickname :) I also buy cupcakes from the store and decorate them. It's a quick shortcut and nobody can tell the difference!

  3. Thanks, Ladies, for your kind comments! <3

    Sue, thank you so much for the idea! I tried to post a comment to your original post but I must have goofed something up since its not there - glad your blog picked up the mention!
